    Transfer in year 2 of medicine

    Advertisements



    Hello everyone. Hope you're doing well. I'm currently pursuing studies in bachelor of medicine,bachelor of surgery (M.B;B.S.) at Dow Medical College,Karachi, Pakistan as a second year student. I have managed to volunteer at several renowned N.G.O's of Karachi together with engaging in major research projects. I am considering a transfer to any of the renowned Medical Schools of US (preferably New York City), Australia, Ireland, Denmark, Singapore and Malaysia on scholarship basis. Can anyone here guide me about it, if possible? i'd be grateful.

    Contacting the schools you are interested in directly (via phone/email) might be your best course of action. As far as I am aware, not many US schools accept international transfers.

    Bear in mind also that without a bachelor's degree and MCAT scores, you will not likely even be considered.

    The US medical school system operates on a 4+4 system, in which applicants complete a 4-year university degree BEFORE medical school, which is then another 4 years in length. Applicants also have to take the MCAT in order to prove their mastery of the premedical sciences. Without these credentials in-hand, it ain't happening.

    You have taken the right decision of transferring from your medical school in Pakistan to a medical school in the U.S. But I personally feel that you can choose to continue your medical education in the medical schools in the Caribbean countries. There are many medical schools in the Caribbean that accept credit transfer. Check with the medical schools or university before applying.

    No, it is certainly not the right decision to try to transfer to a US medical school. US medical schools do not operate on the same academic system as most foreign schools, and foreign transfers are almost never considered.

    The Carib might be an option at some schools, but not the US.
